Perfect Wedding Hair With Lucy Marr
Every bride should feel nothing short of heart-thumping gratitude and affection for her stylist on her big day. We understand how important the planning process is so we’ve put together some of our secrets to great wedding day hair. It all starts with… the rehearsal.
1. Pace yourself. Schedule your hair trial three months before the wedding. If you book it too early in the planning process, changing trends or chronic indecision could lead to second-guessing.
2. Bring visuals. Lets face it, most girls have an album or a mood board of snapshots to do with their big day—anything from a photo of you in your dress to the flowers you’ll be carrying—it could be helpful to share with your stylist for aesthetic guidance.
3. Don’t bring a posse. Mother or best friend, those whose opinion you trust should come with you but too many voices can create chaos.
4. Wear makeup. You’ll be staring at yourself for a few self-critical hours, so put your best face forward. If you can, schedule your makeup trial to happen right before your hair trial. We also offer a range of make-up services within Lucy & The Powder Room, our top makeup specialist Nora McGrath has recently put together some great packages for brides to be and is available for call out services.
5. See what works. Don’t forget the hair accessories (veil, comb, flowers etc.) you plan on wearing so you can experiment with them. Take photos of each hairstyle (expect to try out three options) from different angles.
6. Plan a night out with your girlfriends the evening of your trial to make sure the style doesn’t fall out after an hour—or two minutes—of a little riotous behaviour.
7. Pay attention. Our stylists are able to help write down a list of the products being used so you can buy miniatures of everything for your On The Day kit. That way, there are no last minute meltdowns!
8. Be explicit about what you want. When something goes awry on the wedding day, it’s usually because the bride was reticent. Speak up—just remember to say please.
